09.29.21 -- A New Era Of Sustainable Biological Treatment

Ushering In A New Era Of Sustainable Biological Treatment

Conventional activated sludge treatment for wastewater is becoming increasingly problematic over time. Not only does the process require significant amounts of energy, which drives up operating expenses, but utilities are under mounting pressure from the U.S. EPA to go green. Aqua-Aerobic’s AquaNereda Aerobic Granular Sludge technology can help overcome these issues as well as other emerging constraints.

Riviera Utilities WWTP At Wolf Creek Upgrades To State-Of-The-Art AquaNereda Aerobic Granular Sludge Technology

The Riviera Utilities Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) at Wolf Creek serves its community of approximately 20,000 residents and had been operating a biological treatment system consisting of a 35-year-old extended aeration oxidation ditch process. Instead of taking the traditional approach of adding an additional oxidation ditch to increase treatment capacity, Riviera Utilities had the desire to “future-proof” the plant and prepare to meet more stringent effluent requirements, including biological nutrient removal (BNR), that were anticipated to be enacted in the future.

Webinar: A Detailed Overview Of The AquaNereda Process And Operation

This webinar defines aerobic granular sludge (AGS), including AGS history, granular formation, and microbiology. The presenter provides a detailed overview of the AquaNereda process and operation and presents a case study of the first installed full-scale system in the U.S.

AquaNereda Aerobic Granular Sludge Technology

The AquaNereda Aerobic Granular Sludge (AGS) Technology is an innovative biological wastewater treatment technology that provides advanced treatment using the unique features of aerobic granular biomass. An aerobic granular biomass is composed of compact granules that provide advantages compared to other secondary treatment processes.
